's hilarious. i'm glad he's okay though. the other dog is like, you idiot. it's over here. >>> steven, i'm just going to call this heebie jeebie tech time. this is from chile. did you though that if you take a leg off of a cockroach it will regenerate another leg? >> oh, like the -- well, yeah. a lot of weird animals do that. >> this cockroach didn't feel any leg removal pain. >> because everyone cares about the well being of cockroaches. >> then they used technology to hook this cockroach leg to the human brain. >> can you move the leg? cockroach correspondentin our expert zach. hey, zach. explain exactly what's going on here. they put this device on this guy's head and then he can control the cockroach leg? >> exactly. right now they can move the leg to the left. they can move it to the right, and they can make it curl. >> what would this be used for? >> there are some possibilities for this like maybe prosthetic limbs. this is a lot different because right now they're not connecting it to anything robotic. they're actually connecting it to a real muscle, which is interesting. >> they have an
stevens as part of a larger narrative about leadership. you have sent a leader to secretary of state clinton saying diplomats requested additional security and that those requests were denied. can you tell us more about that? >> in my letter, we outlined 13 security interest attacks, threats against western targets. let's remember that in the six months that led up to 9/11, which was the death of four americans, the death of an ambassador, first time since the 1970s that has happened. they did ask for increased security. they actually diminished the security pro file. did you know for instance that twice, our compound there in bengha benghazi, sovereign territory, was bombed two times? the white house had never told the american people that let alone the word. did you know that the british ambassador had two assassination attempts on his life? did you know that secretary, ambassador stevens had a facebook post showing where he runs, his picture, and people were advocating they kill the ambassador. all of these things in the six months running up to 9/11 and his ultimate death. it was
investigation. and look at the communiques that came from ambassador stevens. look what wa -- what was transpiring in libya. we have to realize this is a terrorist attack. this an act of war. this is not something that was carried out by some video watching benghazi-based community organizer that said let's bow flash mob the consulate in benghazi. this was a terrorist attack. bill: do you think it stops with susan rice? or does it go to the secretary of state hillary clinton or beyond that? >> this is why we need an independent council and we need the investigations to begin immediately. i think this is an issue -- benghazi-gate is the right term for this. this is very, very serious. probably more serious than watergate. and to call this a response to a video when it was obviously a terrorist attack -- and when you read some of the documentation on this, and you know that there has been other sites and locations that have bind attack in libya, when you know that the libyan government felt there was something getting ready to transpire. when you know a get know detainee was released
, cnn found ambassador chris stevens' journal on the floor of the consulate. former navy seal mike ritlin was on "america's newsroom" earlier, and he agrees with tyrone woods' mom. listen. >> when something of this magnitude happens, rule number one is you have to secure the crime scene. you know, the longer period of time that transpires between when it happens and when you start your investigation, the less actionable the intelligence that you get and the information that you gather from the scene is. >> reporter: on top of that, tennessee senator bob corker is now sending a letter to the director of national intelligence. he wants answers saying, and i'm quoting here: what has changed in libya in such a short time that even fbi agents, our most elite investigative personnel, cannot safely enter the city? what has led to such a precipitous decline? twenty days the fbi is in libya, the fbi, megyn, is not in benghazi. megyn: trace, thank you. >>> well, the president's team fielding tough new questions over the weekend about whether president obama should have chosen to campaign the
stevens. what do you make of the pictures you see of what arwa's talking about? >> as i listen to arwa, it just reinforces what we said last week and we've said from the beginning. investigators have to go there, even if you didn't have all the physical evidence there that arwa just described to our viewers, you would want to know from the witness interviews, anderson, you would want to know measurements, you would want to be able to take people through it to really understand what the dynamic was. but then you see things like handprints and blood samples. one of the things, the first thing you would do, i'll give you an example, that is you would take the blood sample off the toilet and the bidet and see whether or not it matched first to the ambassador's. did he fall? there's all sorts of things you would want to know. you know, the pictures we've seen publicly of his body doesn't look like he did, but you don't know. and all those sorts of bits of information, it is true, it would be a less valuable crime scene now because people have rifled through it, but there's always some value
is an absolute mess. i think -- i've heard stuart stevens as saying let's focus on the economy. i think stuart stevens is exactly right. americans don't care as much in the polls about foreign policy. but several weeks later after this, i think it's very legitimate now that the press is going in and a couple of weeks have passed since the ambassador's death, now, yes. i mean, he's got a responsibility to talk about how badly the white house bungled this. >> i think he does. and indeed, you know, i think right now, the focus is a little misplaced. the notion that -- i think the white house is pretty credible in saying that they're learning more, that their initial instiblgt -- they didn't know the situation was initially, that they've explained it better as they've done intelligence assessments, but it raises the more fundamental question which is why was the consulate not secure? how was it that security issues, as opposed to their stories afterward, these are american lives at stake in an unstable region, what are the intelligence failures? what were the security failures? those are fundament
americans, including the ambassador, chris stevens, two navy seals and a state department staffer were murdered on september 11th. we're told that safety concerns were the reason for the fbi's delay and need for proper military protection of that team in the event of a possible, another attack. leland vittert is live in jerusalem with a long delay now. what is the fbi hoping to learn there, leland? >> reporter: that is the real problem, bill. typically in a criminal investigation or something like this you want boots on the ground as soon as possible to try to sift through the clues, what kind of weapons did these people use? possibly how can you trace those weapons back to who was funding or planning this wrags? what -- operation. what clues did the attackers themselves leave behind to provide evidence to go back and track this attack back? the problem with the fbi in three weeks since the attack on consulate on 9/11, a number of people have been through there, to news crews to on lookers inside benghazi. we know there were sensitive documents seen inside the compound, whether those w
braechz, and attacks in libya leading up to the killing of ambassador chris stevens and three other americans. for example, stevens, they say, took regular early morning jogs around tripoli with members of the security detail, but according to their sources, a pro-gadhafi facebook page trumpheted those runs, posting a threat against the ambassador along with a stock photo of him. stevens stopped running for about a week. then resumed. >> all indications are the ambassador was not reckless, and he took the advice always of his security forces, including sometimes when they said that meetings needed to be canceled, so i think that this is a failure of intelligence, a failure of security, and a failure of judgment, but not of the now diocesed ambassador. >> there were other security braechz, according to the committee and a sale that blew a hole in the security perimeter at the north gate of the benghazi mission. two rocket propelled grenade rounds were fired at the benghazi office of the red cross. and the convoy carrying the british ambassador was attacked by a militant with a grenad

in the annual tunnel-to towers run. >> named for steven siller, a new york city fire fighter who died that day. the race retraces the path siller took from the brooklyn battery tunnel to world trade center wearing 60 pounds of gear strapped to his back. he ran through the tunnel with all the gear on to a burning building. an amazing guy. >>> a much different kind of competition we'll show you. one that pits man against deer with spectacular results. >> skateboarders, fully equipped with safety gear headed down the mountain, all going well. until a deer seemingly appears out of nowhere. slams into one of those borders. man. >> uh-oh. we're told the deer wasn't injured. the skateboarder probably just still eating dust. got to look out for the deer. >> it is so true. deer crossings, car or skateboarder. looks like a body check. like a hockey check. >> check this out. yeah. >> yeah. >> thank goodness he's okay. looks kind of steep. looks like it falls off a little bit. >> are we sure that the deer is okay? >> i guess we're sure that the skateboarder is okay and the deer apparently ran off with a d
? whether stevens himself requested it, somebody was asleep at the switch. >> bob: according to the letter, eight requests were made for additional security. there is no proof of that. no evidence. >> dana: they're not going -- they're just going to make that up? >> eric: issa is lying, chafitz is lying -- and fox and cnn gained sources as well. so all the sources are lying. everyone is lying. >> dana: what was made up was the accusation that it was all because of a video. that was made up. >> greg: let's go through this. threats on facebook. we know that. ambassador fearing for his life. we know that. 9/11, four americans died. we know that. blaming the video, we know that. that has to be the worst example of administration leadership i've ever seen. if mitt romney doesn't bring this up tomorrow, he is isn't fit to run for president. >> dana: tomorrow night is the domestic policy. tomorrow night is about domestic policy. i bet romney finds a way to bring this in. when you talk about domestic policy you are talking about our security as well. >> eric: one more thing he might want to bring
, the mission was in benghazi, we understand that chris stevens wanted to be there, had a connection to benghazi, had been there during the war. but was he adequately secured and what about the nurfailures intelligence. >> they knew libya was not going to calm down overnight and have multiparty elections and a normal place overnight. they had to look at the tactical issues there and it seemed there were a lot of problems with militias running around not integrated into any police force let alone the national army. there were issues they needed to look at. on the other hand you're trying to manage that risk with the need to get out, talk to the libyan people, make sure they understand that we care, that we didn't just lose interest once gadhafi left the scene. i think it is -- it was very important to get out there, but, you know, i think the accountability review board is going to look at that very crucial question how well did they manage the risk? you cannot eliminate the risk. this is what diplomats do. we are out there, many of these circumstances, so i think it was the right thing to be out
seconds before he interrupted me. >> and ready to rumble, steven colbert helps train jon stewart for his weekend showdown with bill o'reilly, that is if he doesn't chicken out first. >> jon, you're in worst shape than i thought. i'm going to have to take this to another level. full immersion. guenther, fetch me chucker carlson. thank you. >> so, after i use the chicken to wash your car. >> yes. >> am i ready? >> no. not even close, because to defeat bill o'reilly you must first catch the bird, wax my car with the bird and absorb its soul, the bird to defeat bill o'reilly you must make the bird into a chick-fil-a fillet sandwich. >> no. that is completely absurd! do you want to win? >> i do want to win. >> let the training begin. >> all right! ah -- >> good day. i'm andrea mitchell live in denver where mitt romney took the fight to president obama in wednesday's debate. last night it was the president who often seemed remote and disengaged. joining me now on the phone from the president's speech that he's just had in denver is chuck todd, of course, traveling with the president. chuck, wh

, brooke. >> with the assassination of chris stevens, u.s. ambassador, looks like that could be an issue in the election. should mitt romney make it one? >> that's the question, brooke. as you know politico's done some great reporting as there's real tension in the romney camp as to capitalize on the issue or just stay on the economy. it's the economy, stupid. but obviously the attack in libya has become a hugely politicized issue. you can see it from both sides. today the chairman of the house oversight committee came out with a letter saying that the united states government had denied repeated requests for more security at the consulate in benghazi and listing 13 incidents that had happened over the past six months that he thinks were warning signs that were ignored. so he's going ahead with that. and he's going to bring congress back to have hearings next week on this issue. no question this has become a political issue and in terms of hearings, coming at a very bad time for president obama and the democrats. >> something to look for possibly if not tomorrow night in denver in that d
